Before the dinner, we’ll give you a glimpse of our wine-making region DOQ Priorat, of our winery and of our artisan and traditional manner of wine elaboration. We’re very grateful to the Moraima restaurant for this chance of promoting our wines!

Grape harvest 2015 in Priorat: with our grapevine adopters (video)

What implications do our grapevine adoptions have? One of the main features are wine tourism activities for grapevine adopters’ club members.

In September, 2015, our adopters were lucky to participate in a grape harvest master class topped off with a wine tasting at our old vineyad, in the shadow of an old almond tree, enjoying the company, wines, and marvellous panoramic views of the Monstant mountain, Gratallops and El Lloar villages… Vine adopters came from everyplace: Catalonia, Finland, Russia, Poland, Belgium… They really enjoyed our Rocapoll 2012 and particularly when tasting it straigtaway at the vineyard where grapes were harvested for this wine.

On that day, our grapevine guardian Yolanda helped us a lot with filming some moments of the grape harvest master class, where the main part was given to vines and their sponsors. The film was recorded with a GoPro, an iPhone and iPad and intended to get you closer to Priorat vineyard farming… Do you feel like blending in? Besides, Yuletide is round the bend, and grapevine adoptions could be a great gift idea for Christmas, New Year or Three King’s Day.

Five tips for wine tasting

tasting at celler devinssi win tours in prioratLike most cellars open to wine tourists in Priorat, we host visitors who sometimes have doubts about the way of tasting wines, whether they should be somehow prepared for a tasting or not. We’ve been reading the recent post by Campbell Bevan about top five tips for a wine tasting. We enjoyed reading it due to its slick and easy style, so that anyone from beginner to expert can understand it. We decided to borrow the outline of the post and provide it with another body, you know, Priorat-wine full body. We squeezed the five tips into four and added another one of our own consideration.
